FOB is not Front of the Beast lol. It is indeed, Front Of Board, meaning the mics were set up in between the soundboard and the stage.

The MOTB sources, I believe are just sources that were cleaned up by a team of audio editors or something, and they named this project Mouth of the Beast.

from the above site:
" The missing sound is the dynamics of being up close to the stage while the band performed. Up front, dead center in the first fifteen rows is where "the sound" was ideal. The tapers knew this was the spot. They braved security and the bands' roadies to make these tapes. This project has been started to preserve, archive and distribute these rare recordings. This project is for the fans — who want to experience recordings made in the "Mouth of the Beast"."

So, when the tapers are up front (in the MotB), they record sounds from the stage as well as from the sound system. Un-amplifed sounds such as the drums/cymbals & un-amp-mic'd sounds like from many of the electric instruments are picked up (i.e., louder) as well. This might give a better stereo 'soundscape.'

I love 'em...

not true. Check out what they did with this Betty Board! I always thought it was the best sounding transfer on the archive.
